Middle School

AN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL IN PARIS FROM 11 TO 14 YEARS OLD

Our international school ICS Paris caters for students from Grade 6 to Grade 10 and has been designed to offer the Middle Years Programme* of the International Baccalaureate.  

A bespoke curriculum

For Grades 9 and 10, students follow a bespoke curriculum with specific subjects in key academic areas, including a variety of electives. Some Grade 9 (Year 10) subjects and most Grade 10 (Year 11) subjects lead to the official Cambridge International IGCSE examinations, which students can choose to sit (optional).

The International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum in Paris

Our international school ICS Paris follows the Middle Years Programme (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate in Middle School, complemented by daily French instruction offered at five proficiency levels.

At the end of the Middle School, students can continue their learning journey in the Middle Years Programme (MYP) of the International Baccalaureate and work towards the IB Diploma Programme which prepares them to earn the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
